"But we've been in all three games, we've had chances to win pretty much all three games, being up in some of the games". In toying with Toronto in Monday's Game 4, LeBron, Kevin Love, J.R. Smith, Kyle Korver and George Hill combined to score 95 points while shooting a combined, and ridiculous, 71 percent from the field.

Prior to the semi-finals, there was confidence the Raptors could finally overcome LeBron James' Cavs but he had the last laugh, inspiring his team to the Conference finals against either the Boston Celtic or Philadelphia 76ers.

Once again it was LeBron James who landed the fatal blow in Game 3, sealing the Raptors' defeat with a game-winning two-pointer at the buzzer.

James feels there is more to come from the Cavaliers after they brushed the top-seeded Raptors aside.

James had played every other night dating back to Game 5 of the Pacers series.

The Cavaliers had been in control for the majority of the game, but a late run from the Raptors had suddenly put the game in question in the final minute.

"We showed a lot of maturity today and came up with a win", said McConnell, adding that the team was unfazed by the statistical improbability of overturning a 0-3 series deficit. For example, when the Raptors needed him most, DeMar DeRozan failed to step up, scoring just 21 points total in Games 3 and 4.


Isaiah Thomas, who overcame the death of his younger sister to help the Celtics to last year's conference finals before injuring his hip in Game 2 against the Cavs, was one of the key pieces in that Irving trade. In that series, the 5th-seed Pacers pushed James and the Cavs to the limit, forcing them to work their hardest just to get out of the first round.

"It was a great series for us", James said. "That's all you ask - in a hostile situation, the other team playing really well, putting ourselves in a position to win".

38 -For just the second time this postseason, James played fewer than 40 minutes.4 It may not seem like that big of a deal, but pair that with the fact that the Eastern Conference Finals won't begin until Sunday or next Tuesday and that is plenty of rest for the King going forward.

Casey said his team played with "our trousers on fire defensively", but struggled to take care of the ball on offence. The Cleveland Cavaliers aren't almost finished.

James was also kind in victory, saying the Raptors were "a very well-balanced, put-together team this year". Cleveland won just 50, but are now poised to eliminate the Raptors from the playoffs.

And as rumors swirl about Casey's future, Lue said Toronto would be foolish to do anything rash. Didn't lose three straight during the regular season, then lost four in a row to the Cavs. Love became the fourth player in Cleveland history with 500 career playoff rebounds, joining James, Thompson and Zydrunas Ilgauskas.
